About

Our Team

Adam Bedard is the owner and operator of All In Sportfishing.

Adam grew up in Alberta, and has fished many of the lakes, rivers and streams. Later on, he developed a passion for big game ocean fishing, fishing the blue waters while in Mexico and Hawaii. It was this passion that drew him to Vancouver Island, Canada, where he relocated to with his wife in 2014. Fishing the waters of Vancouver Island, Adam fell in love with the screaming reels, and the multitude of salmon species that call these waters home. In addition to sharing his passion for fishing with others, he also enjoys the experience people get when they see the awe inspiring views and wildlife that is so abundant in the area. With fantastic fishing opportunities, and unparalleled scenery, it is a trip you’ll always remember.

Adam is a fully insured operator, and has successfully completed the necessary requirements set out by Transport Canada for a tidal angling guide. These certifications include; Small Vessel Operator Proficiencies (SVOP), Marine Basic First Aid + CPR, MedA3, and RocM. He is also a member in good standing with the Sport Fishing Institute.

Safety is our top priority, on and off the water, thus ensuring that everyone returns home from a safe, and enjoyable day on the water!

Our Boat & Gear

The boat we are running is an 26’ Bayliner Trophy Pro paired up with a 250 horse Mercury Verado. The boat’s size offers ample fishing space for you and your family or friends to enjoy a day out on the water. Another great advantage to this boat is an on board bathroom, perfect for those unpredictable times when Mother Nature calls. This boat is a tried, tested and true West Coast Salmon slaying machine and comes with two great big fish holds to keep your catch as fresh as possible.

Various upgrades have been made to aid in the fish catching ability. The electronics have been upgraded to the Lowrance HDS7 Gen3, and is paired with the Airmar P66 transducer. Couple that with Raymarine 12 inch E120 color plotter and raydome radar.

We also rely heavily on our Scotty 2106 high power downriggers, to get the gear down to the bottom of the deep water. Fishing at depths of 300’ isn’t unheard of, so be ready to reel like there’s no tomorrow!

Our gear is second to none, and we love fishing with our Shimano technium mooching rods, paired with our Islander MR3 mooching reels. Various top-of-the-line bait will be used, to encourage the big one to bite. Many of these products are well known, and are consistent producers, including GibbsDelta spoons and jigs, Lighthouse lures, Lure Jensen, Rhys Davis teaser heads and many more.

We fish with the best, in our search to haul one in!

Our Location

The east coast of Vancouver Island offers many different sportfishing opportunities. For this reason we prefer to use several locations to get on the fish. One of our preferred locations to launch from is Salmon Point Resort RV Park and Marina, nestled between Campbell River and Comox/Courtenay.
